Outfit Post: Top Hat

I got this hat last year. I wore it a couple times but couldn’t get over Drew’s comment that it was my Indiana Jones hat.

This year, I’ve been breaking it out left and right and because of his comment, I’m considering dressing like my favorite Harrison Ford character for Halloween (seriously though, any one have any last minute tips cause I am struggling). Last week I wore it a little more casually but today I’m dressing it up a little. This little black dress was one of my best buys ever on ASOS. I’ve had it for a couple years now and I still turn to it when I’m coming down to the wire and still haven’t found something to wear. Clearly waiting until the last minute is a big problem for me.

Throwing on a hat can be a little daunting since you’re inevitably going to get a few looks and it’s definitely something we’re not all used to wearing on the regular. My tip is to keep the rest of the look simple so that the hat stands out but never looks cartoon-ish or costumey. Also, these suckers are WARM so you’ll want it to be a little brisk so you’re head doesn’t get all sweaty (gross, i know. sorry).

I’m thinking of breaking this look out again this weekend, albeit with tights since it’s finally getting a little chilly, for an engagement party for some friends. Despite being unprepared for almost everything, I am definitely prepared for my brother-in-law (and probably others) to give me a hard time about the hat. I’m thinking it will be something about Halloween being over so I can pack up my Carmen Sandiego costume but there’s also the chance for some safari comment. Either way, I’ll take it. Indiana Jones FTW.

Okay I’m off to tackle that inbox before doing cutting out early to tailgate for the UofL vs. FSU game tomorrow (celebrating my office’s third anniversary! woo hoo!). If you’re running around Papa John Cardinal Stadium tomorrow, we’ll be tailgating by Gate 1 – come say hey!

Inspiration: Down to the Details

It’s Friday and I’m as excited as Rebecca Black (sorry for that old-ass reference) for the weekend. We have a wedding on Saturday before jetting off to Miami early on Sunday morning. It’s been a long time since I’ve been home and I am ready for a week back in the 305, especially since we’re going {straight from the airport} to the Dolphins game on Sunday. We’re also planning on taking a little road trip to Disney World while we’re in Florida and I’m pretty sure that I’m way more excited than my kid. Oh and on a side note, last night we met Michael Bolton (so random).

But enough of all that, it’s been a while since I’ve done a detail focused post even though those snaps are always my favorites. I thought that since we’re at a change of seasons (well, it’s supposed to be fall sometime soon despite the 85 degree temps outside), I’d share some of my favorite details from the last few months.

Oh and if you missed a post and want to see the full look, just click the image.

Outfit Post: Now and Later

Today feels like a Friday to me. We’re leaving this afternoon {on a 10 hour drive} to Alabama for a fun wedding weekend and I’m in the process of running through my final checklist of to-do’s while mentally checking out. Not so good when you’ve got a full day of work ahead.

This outfit post is coming a little later than I would have liked it, it just got lost in the shuffle but since it’s going to be a toasty 85 degrees today here –  I guess it’s not totally inappropriate. I snagged this light-weight sweater at the Monkee’s grand opening and have been breaking it out on almost every semi-chilly day since. I love how cozy and slouchy it is, plus it goes with just about everything. Now that I look at this outfit again (and check out how wonky my hair looks in all of them), I’d probably change out my black booties here for something a little different, maybe the Target booties I snagged earlier this week.
